Allegri Event at NYFW

I attended the laid back Allegri event tonight in the courtyard at Lincoln Center. With food, drinks and umbrellas hanging from the sky, the event displayed the coats on mannequins on a platform in the middle of the courtyard. Allegri, a company based out of Florence specializes in outerwear and rainwear, who are known for using really good fabrics to ensure the best protection.

Fun event to help wind us down a little before this fashion week comes to an end!

Designer: Sophia Kokosalaki

Season: Fall/Winter 2011

This season’s vibe: “Not to go minimal—at the moment, everyone’s going minimal. You can still dress in a casual way and dress up,” Kokosalaki said.

Key Pieces: biker jackets, python-printed leather pants, bell-bottoms, thick cable knits

Influence: Solider/ military

Color Palette: burgundy, navy blue, olive green, cigar brown

Thoughts: I wasn’t a big fan of the DIESEL collection this season. Between lace-up denim, leather moto jackets and bell-bottoms, I felt too much was going on.

What are you thoughts on DIESEL BLACK GOLD this season?!

Vera Wang NYFW – Fall 2011

photos courtesy of mbfashionweek & style.com

About: “She name-checked glamorous Americans of the 1930’s in her show notes, specifically Viscountess Thelma Furness, Lady Emerald Cunard, and Duchess of Windsor Wallis Simpson, all of whom might’ve worn Fortuny’s famous, finely pleated tea gowns in their day. Wang is clearly trying out a new direction—there was no jewelry and no clusters of crystal and tulle in today’s show.” -style.com

Key Pieces: pleated skirts, feather accented vests, leather trim vests, fur & leather jackets, pleated tops, pleated dresses

Accessories: oversized leather gloves

Hair/Makeup: dramatic, dark eye makeup with a subtle natural lip shade; the hair, for most of the collection was pulled into a loose, almost fluffy ponytail

Color Palette: slate grey, taupe, off white, olive green, red, dusty pink, black

Thoughts: Not a standout collection from fashion week but nonetheless still very elegant and pretty. The simplicity in her collection is refreshing and her use of pleating is perfection…the long, pleated dresses are simple and to the point, sure to be seen on all your favorite celebrities in the months to come!

What do you guys think? Simply perfect or could have used a little bit more accessorizing?
